Uganda Safaris & Tour Adventures
On a Uganda Safari, nothing beats a face to face encounter with a giant 200kg Mountain Gorilla silverback, with eight times the power of a grown man, in its natural habitat, although an encounter with the over 100 strong family of chimpanzees in Kibale forest National Park must rank as the truest definition of ‘a walk on the wild side’- it could make your heart skip!
Take to some of the world’s most amazing grade 5 rapids by water rafting amongst the rapids of the magnificent river Nile, the world’s longest river and experience the true epitome of an adrenaline pumping river adventure in Jinja. Top it all up with a ‘Dare Devil’ bungee jump thrill over the river Nile at the same spot; we have it all in our diverse safari packages.
How about climb the legendary ‘Mountains of the moons’, the Ruwenzori Mountains and marvel at their ice capped peaks that straddle the equator on a 10-days adventure with experienced guides; or hike the fringes of the famous Mount Elgon on the Uganda/Kenya border. Take a launch cruise on the crocodile infested waters of the Nile, in Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth National Parks.
In Murchison Falls, come up close to the base of the vicious Murchison Falls. Here, the mighty river forces its entire self through a narrow 7m cleft to tumble 130ft down in a thunderous show of mighty power; without a doubt one of the most breathtaking sceneries imaginable. Take a hike up to the top of the falls and marvel at the falls from above, or take a sunset cruise to the delta area of this amazing park. There just so many things you could do – Contact us for a truly adventurous Uganda Safari, the adventure capital of the world!
